Bachelor in Marine & Environmental Science
Program includes a rigorous curriculum covering subject matters related to marine & environmental science, such as geology, biology, physics, chemistry, and more. Students enrolled in the program will receive real world experience and hands-on interactions with Marine Wildlife by visiting preserve locations. Graduating requires the completion of an internship at an external site (6-week minimum duration).
Upon the completion of required marine science and environmental science courses, the student will be expected to:
Synthesize principles and skills derived from the basic sciences in the application of the scientific method to problems relevant to marine and environmental science;
Review critically germane scientific literature, based on specific criteria;
Integrate extracted information from scientific literature;
Conduct field and laboratory investigations that will culminate in data analysis to include statistical hypothesis testing;
Demonstrate competency in presenting the results of field and laboratory investigations at professional meetings;
Successfully complete an internship at an external site by satisfying established requirements: six-week minimum duration; direct supervision and evaluation; involvement in a variety of meaningful activities; responsible performance of tasks and duties required; and completion of a final summary paper.
